File Name: money and banking what everyone should know .zip
Money is any item or verifiable record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts , such as taxes , in a particular country or socio-economic context. Money is historically an emergent market phenomenon establishing a commodity money , but nearly all contemporary money systems are based on fiat money. The money supply of a country consists of currency banknotes and coins and, depending on the particular definition used, one or more types of bank money the balances held in checking accounts , savings accounts , and other types of bank accounts.
Bank money, which consists only of records mostly computerized in modern banking , forms by far the largest part of broad money in developed countries. The word "money" is believed to originate from a temple of Juno , on Capitoline , one of Rome's seven hills. In the ancient world, Juno was often associated with money. In the Western world, a prevalent term for coin-money has been specie , stemming from Latin in specie , meaning 'in kind'. The use of barter -like methods may date back to at least , years ago, though there is no evidence of a society or economy that relied primarily on barter.
Many cultures around the world eventually developed the use of commodity money. The Mesopotamian shekel was a unit of weight, and relied on the mass of something like grains of barley. Societies in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia used shell money — often, the shells of the cowry Cypraea moneta L.
According to Herodotus , the Lydians were the first people to introduce the use of gold and silver coins. The system of commodity money eventually evolved into a system of representative money.
Eventually, these receipts became generally accepted as a means of payment and were used as money. Paper money or banknotes were first used in China during the Song dynasty. These banknotes, known as " jiaozi ", evolved from promissory notes that had been used since the 7th century.
However, they did not displace commodity money and were used alongside coins. In the 13th century, paper money became known in Europe through the accounts of travelers, such as Marco Polo and William of Rubruck. The gold standard , a monetary system where the medium of exchange are paper notes that are convertible into pre-set, fixed quantities of gold, replaced the use of gold coins as currency in the 17th—19th centuries in Europe. These gold standard notes were made legal tender , and redemption into gold coins was discouraged.
By the beginning of the 20th century, almost all countries had adopted the gold standard, backing their legal tender notes with fixed amounts of gold. The U. In the U. After this many countries de-pegged their currencies from the U. According to proponents of modern money theory , fiat money is also backed by taxes. By imposing taxes, states create demand for the currency they issue. In Money and the Mechanism of Exchange , William Stanley Jevons famously analyzed money in terms of four functions: a medium of exchange , a common measure of value or unit of account , a standard of value or standard of deferred payment , and a store of value.
By , Jevons's four functions of money were summarized in the couplet :. This couplet would later become widely popular in macroeconomics textbooks. There have been many historical disputes regarding the combination of money's functions, some arguing that they need more separation and that a single unit is insufficient to deal with them all.
One of these arguments is that the role of money as a medium of exchange conflicts with its role as a store of value : its role as a store of value requires holding it without spending, whereas its role as a medium of exchange requires it to circulate. The term "financial capital" is a more general and inclusive term for all liquid instruments, whether or not they are a uniformly recognized tender. When money is used to intermediate the exchange of goods and services, it is performing a function as a medium of exchange.
It thereby avoids the inefficiencies of a barter system, such as the inability to permanently ensure " coincidence of wants ". For example, between two parties in a barter system, one party may not have or make the item that the other wants, indicating the non-existence of the coincidence of wants. Having a medium of exchange can alleviate this issue because the former can have the freedom to spend time on other items, instead of being burdened to only serve the needs of the latter.
Meanwhile, the latter can use the medium of exchange to seek for a party that can provide them with the item they want. A unit of account in economics  is a standard numerical monetary unit of measurement of the market value of goods, services, and other transactions. Also known as a "measure" or "standard" of relative worth and deferred payment, a unit of account is a necessary prerequisite for the formulation of commercial agreements that involve debt.
Money acts as a standard measure and a common denomination of trade. It is thus a basis for quoting and bargaining of prices. It is necessary for developing efficient accounting systems. While standard of deferred payment is distinguished by some texts,  particularly older ones, other texts subsume this under other functions. When debts are denominated in money, the real value of debts may change due to inflation and deflation , and for sovereign and international debts via debasement and devaluation.
To act as a store of value , money must be able to be reliably saved, stored, and retrieved — and be predictably usable as a medium of exchange when it is retrieved. The value of the money must also remain stable over time. Some have argued that inflation, by reducing the value of money, diminishes the ability of the money to function as a store of value. To fulfill its various functions, money must have certain properties: .
In economics, money is any financial instrument that can fulfill the functions of money detailed above. These financial instruments together are collectively referred to as the money supply of an economy.
In other words, the money supply is the number of financial instruments within a specific economy available for purchasing goods or services. Since the money supply consists of various financial instruments usually currency, demand deposits, and various other types of deposits , the amount of money in an economy is measured by adding together these financial instruments creating a monetary aggregate. Modern monetary theory distinguishes among different ways to measure the stock of money or money supply, reflected in different types of monetary aggregates, using a categorization system that focuses on the liquidity of the financial instrument used as money.
The most commonly used monetary aggregates or types of money are conventionally designated M1, M2, and M3. M1 includes only the most liquid financial instruments, and M3 relatively illiquid instruments. The precise definition of M1, M2, etc. Another measure of money, M0, is also used; unlike the other measures, it does not represent actual purchasing power by firms and households in the economy. It is measured as currency plus deposits of banks and other institutions at the central bank.
M0 is also the only money that can satisfy the reserve requirements of commercial banks. Legal tender , or narrow money M0 is the cash created by a Central Bank by minting coins and printing banknotes. Currently, bank money is created as electronic money.
Contrary to some popular misconceptions, banks do not act simply as intermediaries, lending out deposits that savers place with them, and do not depend on central bank money M0 to create new loans and deposits.
Money is the most liquid asset because it is universally recognized and accepted as a common currency. In this way, money gives consumers the freedom to trade goods and services easily without having to barter. Liquid financial instruments are easily tradable and have low transaction costs. There should be no or minimal spread between the prices to buy and sell the instrument being used as money.
Many items have been used as commodity money such as naturally scarce precious metals , conch shells , barley , beads, etc. Commodity money value comes from the commodity out of which it is made. The commodity itself constitutes the money, and the money is the commodity. These items were sometimes used in a metric of perceived value in conjunction with one another, in various commodity valuation or price system economies. The use of commodity money is similar to barter, but a commodity money provides a simple and automatic unit of account for the commodity which is being used as money.
Although some gold coins such as the Krugerrand are considered legal tender , there is no record of their face value on either side of the coin.
The rationale for this is that emphasis is laid on their direct link to the prevailing value of their fine gold content.
In , the British economist William Stanley Jevons described the money used at the time as " representative money ". Representative money is money that consists of token coins , paper money or other physical tokens such as certificates, that can be reliably exchanged for a fixed quantity of a commodity such as gold or silver. The value of representative money stands in direct and fixed relation to the commodity that backs it, while not itself being composed of that commodity.
Fiat money or fiat currency is money whose value is not derived from any intrinsic value or guarantee that it can be converted into a valuable commodity such as gold. Instead, it has value only by government order fiat. Usually, the government declares the fiat currency typically notes and coins from a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve System in the U. Some bullion coins such as the Australian Gold Nugget and American Eagle are legal tender, however, they trade based on the market price of the metal content as a commodity , rather than their legal tender face value which is usually only a small fraction of their bullion value.
Fiat money, if physically represented in the form of currency paper or coins , can be accidentally damaged or destroyed. However, fiat money has an advantage over representative or commodity money, in that the same laws that created the money can also define rules for its replacement in case of damage or destruction. For example, the U. These factors led to the shift of the store of value being the metal itself: at first silver, then both silver and gold, and at one point there was bronze as well.
Now we have copper coins and other non-precious metals as coins. Metals were mined, weighed, and stamped into coins. This was to assure the individual taking the coin that he was getting a certain known weight of precious metal. Coins could be counterfeited, but they also created a new unit of account , which helped lead to banking. Archimedes' principle provided the next link: coins could now be easily tested for their fine weight of the metal, and thus the value of a coin could be determined, even if it had been shaved, debased or otherwise tampered with see Numismatics.
In most major economies using coinage, copper, silver, and gold formed three tiers of coins. Gold coins were used for large purchases, payment of the military, and backing of state activities. Silver coins were used for midsized transactions, and as a unit of account for taxes, dues, contracts, and fealty, while copper coins represented the coinage of common transaction.
This system had been used in ancient India since the time of the Mahajanapadas. In Europe, this system worked through the medieval period because there was virtually no new gold, silver, or copper introduced through mining or conquest. In premodern China , the need for credit and for circulating a medium that was less of a burden than exchanging thousands of copper coins led to the introduction of paper money , commonly known today as "banknote"s. This economic phenomenon was a slow and gradual process that took place from the late Tang dynasty — into the Song dynasty — It began as a means for merchants to exchange heavy coinage for receipts of deposit issued as promissory notes from shops of wholesalers, notes that were valid for temporary use in a small regional territory.
In the 10th century, the Song dynasty government began circulating these notes amongst the traders in their monopolized salt industry. The Song government granted several shops the sole right to issue banknotes, and in the early 12th century the government finally took over these shops to produce state-issued currency.

The last three or four decades have seen a remarkable evolution in the institutions that comprise the modern monetary system. The financial crisis of is a wakeup call that we need a similar evolution in the analytical apparatus and theories that we use to understand that system. Produced and sponsored by the Institute for New Economic Thinking, this course is an attempt to begin the process of new economic thinking by reviving and updating some forgotten traditions in monetary thought that have become newly relevant. Three features of the new system are central. Most important, the intertwining of previously separate capital markets and money markets has produced a system with new dynamics as well as new vulnerabilities.
Ritter and G. Udell , Addison-Wesley, Oscar Wilde wrote that a cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. Although that's certainly worthy of further reflection, for our purposes, price and value refer to the same thing: how much a security or financial asset is worth.
Money creation , or money issuance , is the process by which the money supply of a country, or of an economic or monetary region, [note 1] is increased. In most modern economies, most of the money supply is in the form of bank deposits. The term "money supply" commonly denotes the total, safe, financial assets that households and businesses can use to make payments or to hold as short-term investment. In the United States, for example:. The money supply is understood to increase through activities by government authorities, [note 3] by the central bank of the nation, [note 4] and by commercial banks. The authority through which monetary policy is conducted is the central bank of the nation. The mandate of a central bank typically includes either one of the three following objectives or a combination of them, in varying order of preference, according to the country or the region: Price stability, i.

Он ощупал пальцы жертвы, но не обнаружил никакого кольца. Еще. На пальцах ничего. Резким движением Халохот развернул безжизненное тело и вскрикнул от ужаса. Перед ним был не Дэвид Беккер. Рафаэль де ла Маза, банкир из пригорода Севильи, скончался почти мгновенно. Рука его все еще сжимала пачку банкнот, пятьдесят тысяч песет, которые какой-то сумасшедший американец заплатил ему за дешевый черный пиджак.
Сьюзан протянула карточку и приготовилась ждать обычные полминуты. Офицер пропустил удостоверение через подключенный к компьютеру сканер, потом наконец взглянул на. - Спасибо, мисс Флетчер. - Он подал едва заметный знак, и ворота распахнулись. Проехав еще полмили, Сьюзан подверглась той же процедуре перед столь же внушительной оградой, по которой был пропущен электрический ток. Давайте же, ребята… уже миллион раз вы меня проверяли. Когда она приблизилась к последнему контрольно-пропускному пункту, коренастый часовой с двумя сторожевыми псами на поводке и автоматом посмотрел на номерной знак ее машины и кивком разрешил следовать .
Получалось, что ТРАНСТЕКСТ трудится над шифром больше пятнадцати часов. Она хорошо знала, что процессор перебирает тридцать миллионов паролей в секунду - сто миллиардов в час. Если ТРАНСТЕКСТ до сих пор не дал ответа, значит, пароль насчитывает не менее десяти миллиардов знаков. Полнейшее безумие.
Он хотел, чтобы оно оказалось как можно дальше от него - чтобы мы его никогда не нашли. - Но, директор, - возразила Сьюзан, - это не имеет смысла. Если Танкадо не понял, что стал жертвой убийства, зачем ему было отдавать ключ. - Согласен, - сказал Джабба. - Этот парень был диссидентом, но диссидентом, сохранившим совесть.
